Octodad Dadliest Catch – Nintendo Switch – Released: 11/9/17 – $14.99

Short Review (Review copy provided by Developer)

If you haven’t played this game, go play it…. if you have played this game. go buy it again. Need I say more? Octodad is a game that made me enjoy the weird control issues that could be present in video games. It is a great game and the Switch version is no difference. I spent hours playing this game with friends in college and it is great to share this game with my nephew and girlfriend. It is great fun and once you get a grip with the controls to me it becomes even sillier since you know how to work everything but you are still a mess playing it.

Story

You are Octodad! He is a person that fell in love with a woman and had children. He is being hunted down by a chef that wants to cook and serve him because he is trying to pass as human but he knows the truth. It seems like this world has accepted him as a person while the chef hasn’t since no one but him has an issue with Octodad. 

Gameplay

Now this is where things get weird. Playing alone is a rough experience since you control only one side of Octodad and move limbs around in a strange way that is hard to explain. On the other hand if you have multiple people they each control one limb with their controller. This is the most ideal way to play and will get you the most bang for your buck since your friends and yourself will have a great time playing. Everyone has their own job to do and since everyone knows which limb is what you will always be yelling at another person about what they should be doing. Playing two player is a bit different but you control one half of Octodad each. You will play through several acts that all have different goals and each one has a unique thing for you to do such as the opening requiring you to mow the lawn then the next stage has you gathering items in a grocery store. The game is very silly and should be taken lightly which makes the entire experience a blast from the moment you boot it up until the end. 

Personal Experience

I booted this game up the instant it finished downloading and recorded the gameplay footage. Octodad is a game I couldn’t stop playing the first time I tried it out and even though the gameplay footage may look pretty good. It took me a while to understand what I was doing with the controller. I always played this game using a mouse and keyboard while my friends used controllers because I didn’t have many controllers for PC at the time. 

Final Thoughts

Go buy it! Did you read the short review? This is a game that is great for all ages and it is funny for anyone playing it. Octodad is even a great game to watch someone else play it. I know with my gameplay footage many people commented saying I was pretty good at the controls…. Yet I felt as though it was pretty terrible. 

UPDATE: 5/30/18

I would give this game a 9 out of 10!
